Importance of Increasing Domain Authority /Domain rating
Domain Authority and Domain Rating are both important metrics used to assess the credibility and influence of a website's backlink profile. They help gauge a website's potential to rank well in search engines. Domain Authority is a metric by Moz, while Domain Rating is specific to Ahrefs. A higher Domain Authority or Domain Rating generally indicates a website's stronger authority, which can lead to better search rankings and more significant organic traffic opportunities. Webmasters and SEO professionals often consider these metrics when evaluating their site's overall SEO performance.

No game is as anticipated as Grand Theft Auto 6 is right now, and Take-Two (which owns GTA developer Rockstar) has forecast a major financial boost between March 2024 and March 2025 – which we think points to a launch window of sorts for GTA 6.

I don't think Pokémon Sleep is for people like me. By that, I mean adults with a relatively consistent sleep schedule with things to do as soon as they wake up. Adults who don't want to be bombarded with numbers and thoughts of collecting Pokémon the moment their eyes open. But I definitely see the appeal for parents…

So it's a good time to revisit the crime-fighting ninjas' best video game outings while we patiently wait…

     CSGO ranks 2023 – CS:GO MM ranking explained

Are you trying to wrap your head around CSGO ranks? There is little in the way of in-game explanations to help you figure out how to get started with CSGO rankings. It doesn't help that earning your stripes will take a lot longer than in other competitive first-person shooters like Rainbow Six Siege and Overwatch, either.

Counter-Strike Global Offensive has continued to grow, now touting a concurrent player count of over 1.8 million during peak hours. That means there are a lot of new players learning the ropes and trying to adjust to one of the best PC games of all time. However, with 18 CSGO ranks and no progress bar, it can be tricky to climb the ladder. So we thought you could use a helping hand in the unforgiving multiplayer game – here is a breakdown of CSGO's ranking system.

If you're after some bonus in-game currency, we've got all the latest Ro Ghoul codes you need, but if you're here, then you're a Roblox fan, so you should also take a look at the latest Roblox music codes and all the most up-to-date Roblox promo codes.

     Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 release date and beta speculation

When is the Modern Warfare 3 release date? There were rumors last year Activision might be taking a break from its annual cycle of Call of Duty games, giving Sledgehammer Games more time to craft a sequel.

Modern Warfare 2 was originally intended to last two years, with Sledgehammer Games set to work on a 'premium release' expansion to continue the FPS game's single-player campaign. This plan pivoted to a full-blown release, and signs are pointing towards Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 launching later this year. MW3 is set to become one of the biggest upcoming games, at least it will when it's been officially announced. Here's everything we know about the MW3 release date, including the latest rumors and leaks.

August 9, 2023: We added new Project Mugetsu codes to our list.

Want all the new Project Mugetsu codes?

How do you kill the Vampire Survivors Ender boss? This is the first real boss the game has seen, and it's a fusion of all five grim reaper enemies, a Super-Reaper if you will, and unlike every other enemy in the game, it fights back.

Is the Vampire Survivors Ender boss a tough fight? Not really, but only if you have the best Vampire Survivors builds.

Still, after a brief wobbly spell in the middle, we're finally getting some decent digital grimdark adaptations of the physical tabletop game that come close to the quality of those classics.

As you head into the Baldur's Gate 3 character creator, you need to think about which BG3 class you'll be picking and how you're going to build them.

Dystopian border control simulator Papers, Please turns 10 years old this week, and developer Lucas Pope has marked the occasion by demaking it. Created in collaboration with Keiko Pope, the resulting browser-based LCD, Please "runs" on a mocked-up LCD console, akin to Nintendo's Game & Watch. Pope is also celebrating the anniversary by donating $100,000 to the International Rescue Committee.

The demake gives you the simplified strokes of the celebrated 2013 game: you're a border control officer, approving or denying entry to the fictional country of Arstotzka, which boils down to checking mugshots and bios against faces that, in this rendition, call to mind Rorschach blots. The representation of an LCD screen with "baked-in" graphics is impressive - I had to fight the urge to tilt my computer to catch the sunlight while playing.

As a liker, consumer and person who used to work in print media, I always get a thrill out of seeing things like books in games, DVD shelves, magazines, you name it. If it's a bit of video game set dressing that has a legible spine with words on it, I will absolutely scrutinise it to the nth degree. Videoverse, the excellent homage to early 00s internet forums and Nintendo's Miiverse that came out earlier this week, doesn't have spine-filled book shelves, per se, but throughout the game you will see a collection of game magazines piling up on Emmett's desk, and readers, let me tell you, they are a delight.

Scan the cast list for Stray Gods and you may notice a fair bit of overlap with that of The Last Of Us. Both Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie) appear in key supporting roles here, while star billing goes to Laura Bailey, aka Abby from Naughty Dog's sequel. Obviously, this means Stray Gods has some top-notch voice talent on board, but these casting choices also make another kind of sense. The premise of this 'roleplaying musical' is inspired by the Buffy the Vampire episode 'Once More With Feeling', you see, and as in that piece of classic TV, part of the appeal is seeing (or hearing) performers who famously earn a crust in more action-oriented roles forced to prove their singing chops instead.

Thankfully, The Last Of Us crew all have a finely tuned set of pipes on them, not least Bailey, and the notes they belt out absolutely do this game's charming and entertaining concept justice. Even better, they're ably backed by the admirable composing skills of Austin Wintory, a fizzy script and pitch-perfect character design.

I'm still stupidly early on in my Baldur's Gate 3 journey - I did, after all, spend several hours replaying the start to see how different origin characters worked - but last night I had my first real run-in up at the chapel near where you crash land in the big nautiloid. I'd played this bit before in early access, so I knew to fireball the tiny bit of rope to drop the big stone down into the floor and take out the rest of the bandits hanging about up there pretty sharpish. But before I went down beneath the chapel (there were a lot of other nasty bandits down there last time I checked), I had a little extra nose around the outside, eventually discovering a locked hatch down a nearby cliff path that took me to the brilliantly named Dank Crypt.

Sensing not all was well down here, I went into hiding mode and gingerly crept around the place, looting the handful of corpses lying about of their gold and spell scrolls, but leaving their weapons. You see, I have a terrible habit in RPGs of stuffing my pockets with absolutely everything I can find. In Bioshock, I will scavenge everything out of every bin like some feral raccoon; in Skyrim, I had to enable a cheat code for infinite storage one time because I was so overencumbered (and couldn't bear to part with everything I'd picked up over the course of the quest) that I actually couldn't move. And in my early hours of Baldur's Gate 3, I started doing exactly the same thing, looting everyone's swords, daggers and crossbows up on the Nautiloid. Not to much effect, mind. Nothing was really that much better than what I already had. So I resolved to do better and resist temptation. And what a dumb idea that turned out to be...

The latest Baldur's Gate 3 patch is out, and all anybody will talk about are the buggy invisible gnome underpants and the penises clipping through clothing. Larian themselves highlighted it in their patch notes, and the socials have predictably gone wild with talk of girthy githyankis. Well, some of us like to think of ourselves as serious journalists, thank you very much, so I'd like to call your attention to the, dare I say, more grown-up elements of the patch, which range from fine-tuning the tooltips to making dragons appear in the right place.

Tear your eyes from those lurid details of absentee knickers and glitchy sausages, and you'll see that Larian has fixed no less than 13 crash bugs and progress blockers, though sadly not the crash bug I always seem to get when I run the game in DirectX 11. They've also sorted out an issue with enemies entering combat when they're on a different floor, together with the occasional odd prolonged silence in over 200 dialogues, and a smattering of minor issues with cameras and clipping. See, this is the stuff video game news is rightly made of. None of your adolescent leering, thanks.

You might already know that first-person fantasy RPG Avowed began life as Obsidian's take on Skyrim, but did you know that it was originally pushed as a multiplayer game, prior to being acquired by Microsoft? That's according to studio head and founder Feargus Urquhart, speaking in the latest and final episode of the Obsidian 20th Anniversary documentary, which is chock-a-block with intriguing factoids from throughout the studio's history.

"One of the things I really pushed was that Avowed was going to be multiplayer," Urquhart said. "And I kept on that for a long time. And I think in the end - not 'I think', I know, in the end, it was the wrong decision to keep on pushing on it. Now [the reason I did it] was when we still independent and we were selling it, it was a more interesting game to publishers. And when you're asking for $50, $60, $70, $80 million, you have to have something interesting to talk about. And multiplayer made it interesting. It was this idea of sort of the peanut butter and chocolate, putting it together - it must be something that's good."

Rockstar's original Red Dead Redemption can seem rather humble next to the rootin' tootin' excellence of Red Dead Redemption 2, but it looms larger in my memory, albeit not for the best reasons. The original Xbox 360/PS3 game launched with a tidal wave of bugs, some of them game-ending. One particular collection of technical gremlins trapped me on a farm during the prologue. Having sat through some cutscenes, I found myself at the centre of a strange spacetime distortion redolent of the other world in Neil Gaiman's Coraline. If I tried to leave the farm the simulation slowly broke down, with movement consisting of weird fragmentary teleports.

I saw a distant rider stop-starting through a canyon with his own hat darting through the air behind him. I followed the man for as long as I could, before tumbling through the terrain into uncreated space. Proper Lynchian stuff. Red Dead Redemption 2 had its share of bugs and glitches, but none of them quite as captivating as this. Still, it would have been nice to see the world beyond the farm, and that was my first thought when Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar announced a new Red Dead Redemption port, for release on 17th August. Sadly, however, the port appears to be PS4 and Switch-only for the moment, though a PC release might happen if the stars align.

Honkai: Star Rail Gameplay Video Focuses on Kafka

As usual, HoYoVerse shared a new Honkai: Star Rail gameplay video, with Kafka being the star this time. This is part of the "Keeping up with Star Rail" series. This means Owlbert and either the character in question or someone close to them introduce the new playable cast member. In this case, Himeko's English voice actress Cia Court appears in-character to discuss the Stellaron Hunter.

As a five-star, Lightning, Nihility character, Kafka will focus on things like status effects. Her normal attack deals lightning damage to one foe. Her Caressing Moonlight skill hits one target and deals splash damage to those adjacent to it and causes any DOT it is suffering to deal damage again. The Gentle, but Cruel Talent follows allies' basic attacks with lightning attacks and perhaps shock. The Mercy is Not Forgiveness technique deals damage to all enemies and may shock enemies. Her Ultimate Twilight Trill damages every enemy, may shock them, and deals more damage to enemies already shocked.

Here's the full "Keeping up with Star Rail — Kafka: Elegance Unmasked" video

These features are a regular fixture for Honkai: Star Rail new characters. Ahead of Blade's official debut, "Owlbert" hosted a similar video focusing on his capabilities. It's unknown if we'll also see one for Luka, the new four-star character debuting on Kafka's banner.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices. A PS5 version will arrive in 2023. The Honkai: Star Rail Kafka banner begins on August 9, 2023.

Final Fantasy frame

Square Enix announced a new Free Login Campaign to celebrate the 10th anniversary of FFXIV: A Realm Reborn, which will allow lapsed players to return to for 14 days without paying for a subscription. The campaign takes place August 9-31, 2023 and is available on all platforms.

To be eligible for the free 14 days, you must have a previously purchased copy of FFXIV registered to your account. It must be inactive for 90 days. If so, then you can download the client and log in, which should activate your trial. Once activated, you will just need to finish installing the game before you are ready to play.

FFXIV recently held its 2023 US Fanfest in Las Vegas, where the next expansion was revealed as Dawntrail. The game also recently received a set of adjustments to PVP balance as well as a new set of armor to earn during the Moonfire Faire event.

Final Fantasy XIV is immediately available on the PC, PS4 and PS5. We will see a version of the MMORPG coming to Xbox Series X in Spring, 2024. The FFXIV: A Realm Reborn anniversary login campaign will be active from August 9-31, 2023 for former players who want to return for two weeks.

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line Season 3 DLC Includes Xenogears Music

Square Enix shared a schedule for Theatrhythm Final Bar Line Season Pass 3 DLC, and Xenogears songs will be there. It is one of five new packs of music on the way for the rhythm game. While the new season starts on August 9, 2023 with SaGa music, we won't get to actually hear the Xenogears Pack's songs until September 20, 2023. The pass is $14.99, and price of add-ons piecemeal will vary.

Here's the Theatrhythm Final Bar Line Season Pass 3 DLC Schedule. The November 1, 2023 add-on's game is left a mystery.

  • August 9, 2023: SaGa Series Vol. 3
  • August 30, 2023: Mana Series Pack Vol. 2
  • September 20, 2023: Xenogears Pack
  • October 11, 2023: Bravely Default Series Pack
  • November 1, 2023: ????

This announcement only covered the titles. It didn't reveal any of the tracks on the way. However, since the SaGa Pack Vol. 3 is out now, we do know the following songs are in it:

  • "Encounter with the Seven Heroes"
  • "Ever Higher"
  • "Final Confrontation"
  • "Four Sinistrals Battle I"
  • "Four Sinistrals Battle II"
  • "Title Screen"
  • "The Ultimate Confrontation"

This isn't the first time non-Final Fantasy series songs appeared in the game as DLC. Lots of SaGa series packs appeared. So did ones for games like Chrono Trigger, NieR, NieR Automata, and The World Ends with You.

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is available for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, and it will get its Xenogears Pack of DLC songs on September 20, 2023.

Amane Kanata break

Hololive VTuber Amane Kanata announced that she will be taking a break to properly deal with her asthma treatment. The liver shared the information through her social media account, where she mentioned experiencing hoarseness and inflammation of her vocal cords. After consulting with her doctor, Kanata decided to focus on her treatment until her symptoms subside.

Kanata explained that the hoarseness is caused by side-effects of her asthma medication. Additionally, the VTuber said that she has been experiencing a dry cough. The dry cough damaged her throat, which caused further inflammation of the edge of her vocal cords. This break will help Amane Kanata recover as soon as possible, as well as avoid polyps or any other complications from forming.

Kanata also informed her fans that she can feel her voice slowly recovering already, and that the inflammation has been reduced lately. Thanks to this, she has been able to work on some projects and jobs that were scheduled before her break, all under consultation with her doctors.

Amane Kanata debuted as part of the fourth generation of Hololive talent on December 29, 2019. Kanata previously announced she would take a break on February 14, 2022 due to the VTuber testing positive for COVID-19. Her return stream was held on April 16, 2022.

     Baldur's Gate 3 Fighter Best SubclassThe Fighter is a classic class in both Dungeons & Dragons and Baldur's Gate as a whole. It may seem like a boring class to some, but you can't complain about the efficiency with which it deals damage. A Fighter doesn't need to be in every party composition, but you'll definitely be glad it's there to pick up the slack in a tough fight. But with its subclasses, it can actually function in tons of different ways. So, here are the best Fighter subclasses in Baldur's Gate 3. Baldur's Gate 3: Best Fighter subclasses, ranked #3 Champion Screenshot by PC Invasion Alright so while none of these subclasses are at all bad, the Champion is perhaps the most boring.

However, it doesn't offer anything substantial besides passive buffs that make your cu...
